Establish the presence of antibodies to parainfluenza
<1:8. Single titers >=1:64 or stable high titers are generally related to recent infection. After initial infection, antibody responses at a later date are often heterotypic and include reaction to other paramyxoviruses (mumps). In the infant population less than 6 months of age, a combination of viral isolation and antigen detection methods is recommended.
